New Zealand’s Blue Warehou fishery is managed by strict quotas, which allow only a set amount of Blue Warehou to be taken commercially each year.

Meat Quality: Blue Warehou have medium-textured flesh with a medium to low oil content and are best cooked by moist heat methods. They are ideal in strong-flavoured dishes such as a curry.
